Elle Fashion Week 2010 in Bangkok: Fashion Bloggers Meet Up

I think that it's a good idea for fashion bloggers who live in the same area to meet up. It's an opportunity for like minded people to learn from each other, inspire one another, or simply just hang out, have fun and discuss anything and fashion. And what better time and place to meet virtual friends who share your passion than in a fashion week event?

It seemed at first that I'm the only fashion blogger who blogs in English in this very sophisticated city of Bangkok. I was looking for other bloggers in this place to connect; but mostly, they blog in Thai medium. But it wasn't so long ago when I met Sweet of Pensandlens in this blogosphere. She's one of my people who happened to be living and working in Bangkok too. Finally we met up. And guess what? We met at Elle Fashion Week 2010 at Central World, Bangkok.

We shared ideas on how to improve a blog's trafffic, how to use some SEO techniques in writing contents and how to make our blogs user friendly.

We shared, too, our encounters with fashion blogger haters, the demeaning comments we received and how we handled them.

And of course, just like any fashion blogger, we clearly love posing for cameras. I first thought, it isn't obvious.

It's funny how you seem to know a person too well even without meeting. And I realized, that what you feel towards a person behind the monitor usually is true when you meet up. It didn't feel like it was the first time we met.

It wasn't part of the plan, but we ended up shopping too. This last photo was taken in the dressing room of Forever21.

  13. you guys are too cute posing around the event. love it!

    also- yeah, obnoxious & rude commenters are ridiculous. maybe they should start a blog with all their opinions, and then if people want to know them- they can go there to read them. :)
